Most current publications of Away in a Manger indicate that the writer of the first two stanzas is unknown. Others name Martin Luther as the author. The song was first published in an 1885 Lutheran Sunday School book compiled by James R. Murray (1841-1905), who gave the song a subtitle of Luther's Cradle Hymn. The third verse was written by John T. McFarland in 1904.
I don't think I have even heard
this song so far this season.
It is such a sweet little song, I can
remember going caroling with my
church group and singing it.
I found this beautiful quilt at
Someday I would love to visit there.
Their quilts are always so beautifully quilted....
Have a wonderful Saturday!
